The awesome pettiness of the Obama administration is truly a sight to behold. Alas, that’s the only sight they’ll let you behold:
Blocking access to trails and programs at South Dakota’s most popular attraction was one thing, but state officials didn’t expect Congress’ budget stalemate to shut down a view of Mount Rushmore.
The National Park Service placed cones along highway viewing areas outside Mount Rushmore this week, barring visitors from pulling over and taking pictures of the famed monument.
They actually closed the places where you could pull off the highway. This isn’t the government shutting down; this is the government going into full screw-the-people mode. Amazing. And horrifying.
